    Where Does All The Road Salt Go?

    DUNMORE — PennDOT says it spread 120,000 tons of salt on the roads in this part of the state this winter. That’s about $7 million worth. All that salt, of course, has consequences. Paul Lecinsky of Dunmore and his 1967 Pontiac GTO have one enemy each winter: road salt. He washes and waxes his classic car all season long to keep it from rusting any more. “Oh, yeah, I’ve had it all these years, 46 years. It’s got to be […]

But it affected thousands of Scranton drivers for […]

    “Everything Natural” Up For Sale

Neighbors say those lots are often the biggest eyesores. “Rundown, […]
